The ninth annual Carson City Senior Invitational Golf Tournament was held January 19-20 in Primm, Nev.

Roger Maxwell and Brent Johnson won on Saturday and second place was Mike and Scott Logue. On Sunday, Nick Paul and Robey Willis came in first, while Freeman Johnson and Wendell Hisle tied Dennis Justin and Kurt Cleek for second.

The long distance contest was won Saturday by Logue. On Sunday, Greg "Digger" Nixon probably set a tournament record by imposing himself with a distance of over 300 meters. Meanwhile, Dennis Small, who turns 90 this month, won the match closest to the pin, being one of the few to have reached the green on the toughest par-3 of the course.

Many participants wore shorts to enjoy the weather.
